Employees of the State Traffic Inspectorate of the Minsk region will conduct massive testing of local roads and rural settlements for four days. From October 22 to 25, inspectors in rural areas will pay special attention to pedestrians, the rules of their transportation, as well as drunk drivers.
Irina Sapunova, senior inspector of the propaganda agitation department of the Traffic Police Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Executive Committee, told the correspondent of MLYN.BY:
- The testing will be carried out in order to prevent road accidents, as well as the suppression of offenses by road users. Both traffic police officers and other public security police services participate in the events. Control on local roads will be public and unspoken.
Irina Sapunova noted that the priority is to identify violations that are the main causes of accidents with serious consequences.
These are violations on the part of vulnerable road users, especially at night, not giving an advantage to pedestrians, driving vehicles by drivers who are intoxicated and (or) do not have the right to drive, violations of speed limits, as well as rules for the carriage of passengers, especially minors.
Violators will be brought to justice in accordance with the legislation of the Republic of Belarus.
